I have been using Cricket for almost 5 yrs and overall have been very happy with the coverage and service. I do not understand why as a loyal customer I do not get the same prices on Phones as a new customer. Is Cricket encouraging me to get a number from a different carrier and than port it in to get these prices??? Help me out here guys. Your marketing genius can do better than this. I am currently looking to upgrade my wife's phone.
@Fred_W We appreciate your loyalty and we apologize for any frustrations. Cricket appreciates all of our customers which is why we offer upgrade discounts, monthly plan discounts, and a referral program that allows you to earn up to $250 per year in bill credits.
While some offers are available exclusively for new customers we do have discounts for existing customers including $200 off the 6s or 6s+.
So what your telling me is with regards to the Apple 6s that you mention for $200 that my reward for being a loyal customer for over 5 yrs. that the 6s is $200 for me, the loyal customer and the same phone for a stranger, someone that has never had a relationship with you gets to pay $100.
Try that rationale with your parents or your kids when you are trying to sell your car. Would you charge your parents or kids more than a complete stranger???
@Fred_W @mike21061 we offer many perks for our existing customers. We also offer a trade up program that allows us to provide credit for your current device and it can be used for a new device. We also offer up to $250.00 a year for our existing customers with the refer-a-friend a friend program. Here is a link to our trade up program and refer-a-friend for more details:
Cell Phones, Plans and Service from Cricket
Top Reasons to Choose Cricket
How to Pick a Cell Phone Service
1. Review your most recent cell phone bill
Look for opportunities to save. In particular, take note of:
How much you're paying per line - Do you have a multi-line cell phone plan? What kind of discount are you getting? Could you save more by switching? Cricket's family and group plan offers a discount for each extra line up to the fifth line - so you could get 5 lines with 2 GB of high-speed data each for as little as $130/mo - as long as all 5 lines are on the $40/mo plan. Discounts apply to lines 2-5.
How much data you use - Do you burn through all of your high-speed data too soon? Do you always have lots of data to spare? Ideally, you don't want to get too little or too much. Cricket has a variety of cell phone plans to fit any lifestyle, so you can choose a cell phone plan that's just right.
Any surprise taxes or fees (which can really add up) - With Cricket, taxes are included in your bill, so you know exactly what to expect. For a list of our current fees, view our Charges & Fees page.
2. Decide how satisfied you are with your current cell phone
"Bring Your Own Phone" BYOP - If you want to keep your phone, bring it to Cricket - just make sure it's unlocked and compatible with our network.
Get a brand new smartphone - Had your eye on one of the hottest new phones? Just need an inexpensive device that does the job? We've got a variety of prepaid smartphones, many with great incentives when you switch to Cricket.
3. Consider any issues you've faced with service you had in the past
